Fantasy Fight Forecasting: The UFC welterweight title picture

It’s a crazy time in MMA with the global COVID-19 pandemic continuing to put a wrench in sports scheduling across the board.

The UFC is targeting a May 9 return that will feature a plethora of big matchups. But no top-ranked welterweights appear to be booked for that card, so 170 pounds is a perfect place to start the “Fantasy Fight Forecasting” series.

We’ll break down the top of each division in a fun, fantasy-like final four bracket that will feature the current champion and each of the division’s top contenders. I reserve the right to change my official pick come fight week since so many things can change between now and the potential then.

Here’s how I see the top of the welterweight division shaking out once the action officially resumes.

Division: Welterweight
Champion: Kamaru Usman
Players: Jorge Masvidal, Leon Edwards, Tyron Woodley
